Brick Pavers Basketball Sports Game Courts
Brick Pavers Basketball Sports Game Courts are a great choice but not the only one when designing your space. There are a number of factors that go into building a sports game courts: budget, local zoning laws, and your property design.
Common Sports Game Courts Materials
♦ Asphalt: The most affordable option for having a basketball sports game court is an asphalt pad with painted lines. The material costs are the least expensive as well as the installation due to cutting out the expense of having the court painted.
Some people have concerns about the durability of unpainted asphalt. It’s been our experience that as long as you don’t have large trees with big tree roots near the court you should be fine and will avoid the potential for big cracks. As for wear and tear, a sports court will not experience the same traffic as your driveway so its longevity will be much longer than your standard driveway.
This is the best material for a driveway basketball court. It’s softer and more forgiving on the body than on other surfaces. For best results, install when the weather is warm and the ground is dry.
The court can be asphalt, and the edging can be brick pavers, beautifying the look of the court.
♦ Concrete: This surface can be slippery and not as soft, making it less desirable for competitive basketball use. In cold climates, the concrete can crack and heave, making it unsafe. Concrete is a common driveway material, works for family-fun basketball, and lasts about 30 years.
Much like an asphalt pad, a concrete pad with painted lines is more affordable than one that’s painted due to cutting out the painting process. The concrete looks nicer but the asphalt plays nicer.
♦ Hard-packed Gravel w/ Mateflex– Many towns, especially in the Northeast, have strict zoning laws that regulate the amount of non-permeable coverage your property can have. If your town will not allow you to have a non-permeable court, then a hard-packed gravel court with Sports Courts tiles may be your best and only option.
If you’re looking for aesthetics, sports game courts tiles look unbelievably beautiful.
Brick Pavers offer a smooth playing surface!
♦ Brick Pavers: Flat pavers can make for a smooth playing surface. They come in many colors and can be replaced if stained or broken. In addition, you can build basketball court lines, such as the free-throw line, right into the design by using different-colored pavers. What we like about it the most is it compliments your property more than any other option. Not that the other options don’t. It’s just that a brick paver basketball sports courts really looks nice, especially if you already have a paver patio.
What you get with this is a brick paver patio with the basketball court lines cut out and replaced with different colored bricks. The aesthetics of this are awesome. The athletics of it aren’t bad either.
◊ Maintenance: Basketball play should not result in any additional maintenance for the driveway, and the hoop structure should require little maintenance. If you see rust, remove it right away and check the warranty that came with your system. A quality system should last a lifetime.
◊ Permit: A permit is not typically required, but you should always check the rules in your area, as well as your homeowner’s association if you belong to one. People may think they can’t have a hoop because of their homeowner’s association. But in many cases, they are allowed, or you can file for an exception. You almost always get one.
◊ Extras: Go beyond the hoop and driveway by adding some helpful extras. These are the most popular:
- Stenciling kit: The kit includes a pattern and paint to add a 3-point line, free-throw line, lane, baseline, and more.
- Pole pad: This cushion around the pole eases any collisions while playing and can be customized with vinyl lettering.
- Lights: LED lamps to illuminate your driveway and allow you to play basketball at night.
- Ball Containment: A net or fence stops the ball from going into the bushes, down a hill, over a fence, or into the neighbor’s yard.
Brick Pavers Basketball Sports Game Courts in Elwood NY
Gappsi installed a basketball sports game court in Elwood located in Suffolk County NY. This sports court was paved with Nicolock Stone Ridge Smooth in 3 color combinations. We used Autumn Blend for the field, Granite City Holland Stones for the 3-point line, as well as for striping. For the key, we used a Travertine color.
The non-skid, flat surface is optimal for basketball and is the choice of many players. Permeable pavers bring the efforts of staying “green” all the way out to the curb! Being environmentally conscious doesn’t always mean sacrificing beauty! This inspiring and colorful blend brings the quality and standards of Gappsi.
We installed an out-of-bounce netting behind the basketball hoop too. The basketball hoop is adjustable regulation size with a LED light installed on the top. Definitely unique and has no need for paint. An extremely durable basketball sports game court with very happy clients. This is the latest Gappsi sports game court creation.
